The Nigerian Police boss, Solomon Arase, met with top commanders on Monday to review the heightening insecurity in the country. He also addressed journalists to reassure a frightened nation still battling Boko Haram terrorists in the northeast that the police force is on top of the situation, his office said in a statement to Simonateba.com.
The meeting was also held to “look at strategic and operational issues associated with the forthcoming elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States,” said Police spokesman Olabisi Kolawole.
“The Inspector-General of Police informed the Squadron Commanders that the country is counting on their strength, commitment and loyalty as the elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states draw closer, while the Force management deploys credible officers to the affected States, saying, “our resolve and competence will once again be tested in this onerous assignment”, as he eulogized the professionalism of the Police Mobile Force,” Kolawole said in a statement.
“IGP Arase further told the PMF Commanders that the reason for the parley, aside analyzing operational trends of the Squadrons, was to brainstorm and fashion out a robust template that will ensure that the forthcoming elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States come, free, fair and creditably transparent,” he added.
